Pro Bowl Rosters Announced, No Cardinals Besides Adrian Wilson On The List


The Pro Bowl Rosters have been announced, and the only Cardinal to make the starting lineup is Strong Safety Adrian Wilson which he also thought was a joke when he first heard that he made the roster, and he thought that Kerry Rhodes deserved it more than him (Wilson also said that he would give Rhodes his spot in the Pro Bowl roster if he could). In fact, the guy Rhodes replaced (Antrel Rolle) made it over Rhodes who didn't even get named as an alternate even though he has been much better than Rolle this season.

Five players from the Cardinals made the roster as alternates: Wide Receiver Larry Fitzgerald, Defensive Tackle Darnell Dockett, Kicker Jay Feely, Guard Alan Faneca, and Cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

As I mentioned before, Kerry Rhodes didn't even get named as an alternate, Ben Graham also didn't get named as an alternate like he was last season. LaRod Stephens-Howling wasn't mentioned either, but the NFC also has Devin Hester who has transformed back into the demon that he was returning Kicks and Punts during his first two years in the NFL and LSH had no shot. I thought that Rhodes was robbed considering how well he has played during his first year with the Cardinals.

For some of my quick reactions, I am surprised Matt Ryan made the roster over Aaron Rodgers (who I think is one of the best Quarterbacks in the NFL right now), and I also think Vernon Davis should have been in there instead of Tony Gonzalez. Antonio Gates is also questionable for me because of all the games he missed. It does seem like more players from the Falcons made it than there should be because of their record this season.

Full Roster from after the jump. Leave your thoughts in the comments section.
